Preferred Solution: Is it possible to change font size in outlook mail folder in left pane. Not the message itself.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

so, I have been searching for days, and cant find a solution that actually works
In outlook 2016, in the folder pane, I want to change the font..not the message pane, or the preview pane, but in the far left pane where all my folders reside.
In older versions of outlook, it was simple, but, in Outlook 2016, I cant for the life of me figure out how to do it

does anyone have a verifiable proven way of doing this, or is this another omission that the brain power at MS has let slip through the cracks?

thanks

Answer:how do I change font size/style in folder pane of outlook 2016

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

Right click on an empty spot on your Desktop and choose “Screen Resolution”.Click “Make text and other items larger or smaller”.You can now directly choose to make the fonts larger. If you prefer a specific font size, you can click on the “Custom sizing options” text link below the presets and type any percentage you like. When you have multiple monitors connected and are using Windows 8.1, then you can select the option “Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays” to set custom DPI settings.

Windows 7
Right click on an empty spot on your Desktop and choose “Screen Resolution”.Click “Make text and other items larger or smaller”.You can now directly choose to make the fonts larger. If you prefer a different font size, you can click on the “Set Custom text size (DPI)” on the left and type any percentage you like.

Windows XP

Right click on an empty spot on your Desktop and choose Properties.Select the Settings tab and click the button Advanced.In the new dialog that pops up you can directly choose “Larger scale (120 DPI)…” in the dropdown list to make the fonts bigger. If you prefer a different font size you can select “Custom DPI…” and type any percentage you like.

Hello,

The left side folder list pane in Outlook 2003 changed the font on its own and I can't find a way to change it back to the way it was before.

How do you change the font and its size in the left folder list in Outlook
2003.

I tried the fix I found on the Microsoft site by going to display ->
appearence -> Advanced and then select icon and change the font and size
there but that did not help. It looks like it works with Outlook 2000 but I'm
on 2003.

Anyone has any ideas.

Answer:Increase font size Windows Explorer Folder Task pane

Have you thought about increasing font size globally? Right click anywhere on the desktop, pick properties, then go to the appearances tab. For font size pick large or extra-large. You may have to reboot.
Also you can use the magnifier tool in Windows to see parts of the screen. Go to start, program, accessories, accessiblity, magnifier. If your friend ends up using it often, go to that same spot in the start menu, right click on magnifier and pick copy. Then go to the desktop, right click, and pick paste.

P.S: Just a technicality: your screenshot shows the "common tasks bar" aka "places bar". The "Windows sidebar" is actually a feature in Windows Vista, which you can see here http://tech2.in.com/media/images/img...ta_sidebar.jpg (it's on the right; it's transparent, so you can't see it, but it's definitely a bar).

Using Mail for Win 10 for first time, as that is what appeared for my Outlook email account.

I've changed my theme and font sizes, however in the Control Panel the font size is really small... Does anyone know if this can be done and if so how do I do this?

Thanks, LL

Answer:Change font size in Control Panel folder

Here are ALL my hints for changing font size. Hopefully, at least one of them will work in your Control Panel.

1. This is the main setting tool for setting font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, at the very bottom, select Window. This is the setting that controls the Control Panel, but unfortunately, it does not give us an option to change the font size. But try some of the others to see if you can get the font size changed there.

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size – DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there’s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page.

4. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, Select Ignore font styles specified on web pages, check boxes and click OK, then Apply, then OK.

5. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

6. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want i.e. Large (Largest may be too large).

I am trying to help friend out that just migrated from Outlook Express on Windows XP to Windows Live Mail 2012 on Windows 7 Home Premium x64. She has trouble reading the from and subject lines after the client marks them as read. I am aware of how to change the default font settings for the compose window and it is easy to make the text bigger in the reading pane but I haven't had much luck finding any suggestions on how to adjust the size or color of the text in the message list.

I have already done a few things to make things easier: I have decreased the resolution which makes the text a little bigger; I have set the DPI setting to 150%; I also went in the Windows Color and Appearance Settings in the the control panel and increased the default font size for menus, message boxes, and title bar to 14 hoping those settings might affect the fonts in WLM but no luck. I can drop the resolution a little more(it is currently at 1600x900 on a monitor with a native 1920x1080 resolution) but I am worried that if I drop the resolution too much lower that I may create more problems than I solve.

Are there are any other settings I am missing that would help? Short of using the screen magnifier or dropping the resolution further I am not sure what else I can do to make Windows Live Mail easier to read.

Hi Gang,

My present problem did not exist earlier. I am unable to increase or decrease the font size in Outlook Express stationary mails. I am able to change the font (Ariel to times etc.) but not the size.

I am aware of "tools, options, compose". In fact it's presently set for size 20. I get size 12.

When I copy from Word or Word Pad a larger font to test it, it converts to size 12.

I can highlight, hit format, change the font this way and it remains default 12.

When I change the format size, initially, the cursor appears changed to the new font size in the mail (say size 36), but once I type a letter or hit the space bar it reverts to the default size 12.

Something is reverting it to the default 12. It's driving me crazy.

It seems to have occurred when I upgraded Opera. May not be related but I grasping for straws.

Any help? Thanks,

davidrs

Somehow in typing an email I have accidentally changed the font size as displayed on the screen so it is too small to read easily. It is only on the outgoing email, incoming emails and all other Office fonts display as normal.

The actualy font size chosen (Arial 12) is still the same, it is just the display that has shrunk (to about 50%), presumably from a keyboard shortcut that was used accidentally.

Can someone please tell me how to get it back to 100% before I go blind?

Does anyone know how to change the font of the message list in Windows Live Mail 2011? When I set the message list view to one-line view the subject of unread messages in the message list is bold Calibri and I can't stand it. When I read the email the font changes and is fine. When I change to two-line view the font is fine.

On my other laptop with Windows Live Mail 2011 the font is not Calibri and it's fine. The only difference between the 2 laptops is that I installed IE9 on this one before I installed Windows Live Essentials 2011. I have since uninstalled IE9 because I didn't like it.

I have outlook express - until recently, when I would open up a new e-mail window - the size of the window would be a nice, cute little, say 8"x10" window that would fit nicely on my screen, and I could scroll up or down on the right side. Now, for some reason which I cannot explain - a new e-mail window extends down past the bottom of the screen, and there is no scrolling ability unless and until the message extends down to that point. Usually when the message gets to that point, the words will "hide" below the bottom bar. Only by hitting the enter key several times, can the text be brought up so it is visible; then arrow up to the the visible text and keep typing. At this point, the scroll bar finally appears. I have obviously pushed something or been sleepwalking again. What do I do to rectify this?? HELP!!

Hey everyone! Long time no see!

Okay, so a friend of my dad told him that he used to see the folder icons and labels in the left pane of Outlook 2007 in a bigger font/size before switching to a new computer with Windows 7. Obviously, we all know that upgrading Windows won't change font sizes that are coded into independent programs, so I'm thinking that maybe his old computer was running at a lower resolution. Anywho, my dad's friend asked my dad to ask me this question, and since I don't use Office 2007 anymore, I need to ask you: is there a way to change the size of the folder icons and labels in the left pane of Outlook 2007, without changing the size of anything else?

Answer:Explorer.exe Left Pane Folder Tree

I had a look at your problem just after you posted eary this morning.Was not sure that i understood what is going on.Thought you had got your Windows Explorer.exe confused with internet explorer.exe.I also considered you had poss a bad update of IE5 as it appears to only have one choice in the add/remove programs for it.Considered at some stage you may have had a virus,but you don't mention anything about a virus scan or any error messages.I would suggest that your problem is wide spread through-out your pc and i think you have issues with your registry and corrupt files within the windows installation."I could also be very wrong" You could go for a quick re-install of windows 98 over itself and see if that cures the problem. It may give you a chance to keep all software programs that are installed and running properly,if that be the case.If it was me, i would not hesitate to reformat and do a repeat clean install of windows.Unless someone can come up with a better idea.

If you don't have any favorites or the arrow is not there you can add the Desktop Icon to it by Clicking and holding the icon and drag it to the favorites tab..



I have not been able to figure out if you can just add an icon anywhere in the side pane my guess in no..

And I have not found a way to change the icons for the libraries..(I don't think you can)

Hope this Helps..

I can get Windows Explorer to open to a specific folder in the Right Pane, but it only shows the "Computer" or "C:" level in the Left pane. I have tried pinning the folder to "Start", and have also tried various switches (n, e, select) as the target in Explorer.

Attached is an example where a shortcut in Start opens TechInfo in the right panel, but not the left.

Is there any way to open the folder in the left pane also? It's a minor issue, but a pain!

TIA.

This is driving me nuts, the left pane items auto expand randomly to show all the drivers in Computer for example.

I then collapse them again, but after a while they expand again.

How can I stop them from ever expanding?

I'm not sure what's causing this as on a fresh install this doesn't happen, I have a feeling when I install qBittorrent, after a file is downloaded for example and I double click on it to show it in its downloaded folder, that's when the left pane items auto expand

Hi, I recently upgraded to Windows 10. I'm having some great difficulty in upsizing the default font size. I've tried changing the font size, but I'm only afforded the option to increase it to 24 (which the current font size is not). Apart from changing a file in regedit to change the default font which I learned from this link; http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/ch...ont-windows-10 , I don't know what might be the culprit behind this problem. I have tried upsizing to 125%-150% but some applications look blurry as a result. I would prefer to increase the font size and nothing else. Any suggestions?

Answer:Cannot change Windows 10 font size with text size increase

I think the culprit is likely my mod to regedit. Unfortunately, I did not save a back up. Would anybody know how to undo this change to regedit after implemented?

Hello,

I just noticed Win Explorer does not refresh the right pane as I navigate up/down a list of folders via arrow keys in the left pane. It used to make rapid visual read of folder contents possible. Can that feature be switched back on?

I've seen this reported elsewhere few years ago but I cannot find it on this site.

Answer:Windows Explorer right pane does not match left folder

Not sure if that's possible. Use the up or down button until you have highlighted the one you want. Then press Enter or Space to update the pane to the right. You use the left and right buttons to collapse/expand sub folders.

I find Space the best and fastest option since you use both hands. One to navigate and the other to refresh the right pane.

Windows 10.

I am having much fun grappling with my displays. I say grapple because I CANNOT see the text!

I have a laptop, with a display that has up to 2048x resolution and an external monitor that does 1920x. I have tried to keep both set the same resolution so the mouse will easily go back and fort.

If I bump one setting, others seem to change. Like after an update too!

I need a script, to set, then set again, and again, the
display settings,
the custom scaling level, and
the "change only text size".

Keeping the monitor placement geometry the same would be great for me too.

Oh for a cross reference on Outlook 2013 to the system setting. I keep manipulating the view settings there too.

Probably to get started I could use a "settings display" script.

This one is getting really annoying. I have noticed that sometimes when using Windows Explorer, if I rename a folder, the right hand pane shows the correct (new) folder name, but the left hand pane still displays the old folder name.

As a matter of fact, even if I right click on the folder name on the left hand pane, and choose "Rename", and then rename it there, when I hit Enter to save the name change, the folder name on the left (that was just highlighted and changed) will revert back to the original name....but the name in the right hand pane will show the change.

For some reason, it just doesn't seem to want to update the view in the left hand pane. And then, to top it off, after some undetermined amount of time, the left hand pane will "refresh" to show the new folder name, but it will STILL show the old folder in the list as well. If I right-click the parent folder and choose "Open in New Window", the view is correct, but the original window still shows the old folder names.

This may only happen after my Explorer windows (I usually have 4 or 5 up) have been open for a long time, as I tried to reproduce with new windows and the behavior is normal (left hand pane updates view immediately).

I've reported it already, but just curious if anyone else has experienced this odd behavior.

Answer:Windows Explorer left-pane not showing changes to folder names

Hi CorrsFan

I think this is just a part of it being a Beta still. I have tried to delete the HomeGroup section, and while it goes for awhile as soon as it refreshes it's back. Just like some sections of the Registry is locked out and some permissions can't be changed, these things will all be sorted out by RC1. Renaming any system item is locked down in the registry and Left (Navigation) Pane items seem to be a part of this lockout.

Make sure to send MS Feedback on this so they know what works and doesn't.

I tend to use the left pane in Windows explorer a lot. I have multiple drives/partitions in my desktop as well as a "rack" of external drives that I connect via a USB hub. I spend a lot of time creating, editing, and saving/moving multimedia files.
In XP, all I have to do in the left pane of Windows Explorer is to single click a folder and not only do the contents of that folder display in the right pane, if there are sub folders inside that folder I clicked, all those sub folders will expand for that "level" of the directory tree.
In Vista, that doesn't happen. I need to double click, or look for that silly little triangle and accurately "zero-in"" on it before I can see the sub folders. This is an absolute pain - If I were to design a feature that would really annoy users, this would be on the top of the (my) list.
When I have to use a notebook, this need to zero-in on that tiny little triangle using the touchpad makes the user experience for me even less enjoyable.
Does anybody know of a way to make the Windows Explorer in Vista Home Premium behave the same way as it did in XP?

Answer:Single click to expand folder tree in left pane Vista

The triangle you are referring to is a single click item seen in 7 as well as in Vista. The settings in the menu bar>tools>folder options can be set for open by single or double clicking.

I am trying to tidy up my hard drives and seem to have a lot of duplication, some intentionally as backups but others not. I had been using Ultra Explorer to do this as I could look at 2 or more drives at the same time in dual-pane view and it gave you folder sizes which Windows Explorer doesn't do. Unfortunately, when I viewed my music folder in Ultra Explorer it gives some strange results, saying there is no content in a folder when I know it is there and I can no longer trust it.

Please can anyone recommend software which shows the breakdown of files and folders and allows you to do this in dual-pane view. I have tried Folder View by MindGems but this doesn't seem to have a dual-pane view. I am running Vista.

First of all, are you trying to change the font size for all Windows (such as using large Fonts on the display) or are you trying to change the font size in a particular program (such as IE or Firefox)?

Hello all...this is my first post, I'm a computer novice...so please bear with me.

While using MS Word, I've accidentally hit a combination of keys (possibly CTRL, windows START, ALT and others were involved) and it has reduced the font size to something like a 2 or 3 point when it actually says in the tool bar it's still 12 point. This occurs whenever I open a new MS Word document or go to write a new email using MS Outlook or go to reply or forward an email, it minimises the signature too!!!

Now when I go to open up a previous email or previous Word document, the orginal font size is maintained. So really, it only occurs when writing new documents or email replies. I don't believe it's a zoom issue, because as I type this, the IE page looks normal.

I've tried rebooting my machine, no go, tried various key combinations e.g. Ctrl + Shift + P etc, etc...no joy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
BTK

I'm trying to change the size of the font used for icons. But only for icons. Everytime I change it it also changes all other explorer font sizes including the start menu and explorer listings. Does anyone know to change only the icon font size?

Any help would be great. Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

I can change a lot of things using the appearances tabs, but I can't change the Desktop Font Size.

The "normal" way to do this that Win7 provides is to change the DPI from 100% to 125, 150 or custom. HOWEVER, doing that causes some programs to not work correctly. For instance Titan Quest, and I've heard in comments on gaming forums that other games sometimes have the same problem. Changing DPI in Win7 causes the cursors to not work properly in many full-screen games and apps. Changing DPI back to 100% requires a reboot, which is a pain.

SO... Is there any way, some registry tweak, perhaps, that will allow me to change the desktop font to a larger size?

Right now, I'm having to resort to switching back and forth from 800x600 screen resolution when I can't read some things. On a widescreen monitor, that's a shameful waste of monitor space. It seems there should be an easier way to do this.
